Have Mercy

Have Mercy (An Ode to Moe)

I woke up to the sound of a voice and it told me
Death is coming here and I can't let the borders hold me
I could climb aboard a ship and Maybe I will die slowly
But maybe I will have a chance to live

I wish I had a choice but believe me I don't have that 
I was shipped in a box on a boat full of rat packs
I swam through the waves and almost sank with my knapsack
I woke up in a place that wants me gone

I'm a man from a land where the law is gunna hurt me 
I tried to live free but it's just not working 
You got a proud flag, could it be water for the thirsty?
Can you open up your door?
Can u please have mercy?

I saw it on the news saw it in their attitudes
I heard the words of hate that flow between the church pews 
Terror is a feeling, not a thing that I will do
It hurts to know so many want me gone


It's like banging on a bolted door 
And I can hear their voices
They are praying for the strength to keep on making christian choices
I do not want to steal your jobs
Or drive your rolls-royces 
I simply need a place to lay my head

I'm a man from a land where they all wanna hurt me 
I tried to live free but it's just not working 
You got a proud flag! Will it be water to the thirsty?
Can you open up your door?
Can you please have mercy?

    Thanks for your comment and I know what your saying isn't true not everyone is like that! By the way this poem is not about any experiences I have had I wrote it as if I were someone else (a refugee)
